What to expect
A walking safari is all about the smaller things the bush has to offer, things you would normally miss while out on a game drive.
The focus is on smaller mammals, birds and insects, along with the surrounding trees and grasses, with a spotlight on animal spoor and dung, small flowers and plants, bird calls and the aromatic smells of herbs and shrubs.
If you are really lucky you might encounter some of the larger mammals while on foot, but normally you can get closer to them when on a vehicle, certainly you will see their “spoor” and even track them if very fresh.
We recommend a reasonable level of fitness as walks vary between 5km and 10km over the three to four hours.
You walk at the pace of the slowest person in the group, so there’s no need to worry about having to keep up with your guide.
